Is Manhattan Beach real estate finally edging out of the COVID-19 shutdown? That's what local home sellers seem to be thinking, as real estate inventory in Manhattan Beach shot up by 20 percent last week.
In just seven days, 28 Manhattan Beach listings joined the "active" column, according to local real estate blog Manhattan Beach Confidential.
Of those 28 listings, 21 were newly active, one fell out of escrow and six moved from a "hold" status to "active," rejoining the list of publicly visible listings after some time off.
The 28 listings together make up 20% of the current inventory of 142 homes (comprised of 123 active listings and 19 on hold).
An additional 7 listings are "coming soon" using a new MLS system that is not visible to the public.
These new listings point to signs that home buyers and sellers are ready to get back in action, said MB Confidential author Dave Fratello, broker at Edge Real Estate Agency.
"The number of new escrows in this past week was only 6, obviously lagging the new influx of supply, but let's give the market some time to do its work," he said.
